I read the overseas rags like Top Gear and in the back there usually is a buyer's guide, and a lot of the SUVs that we get here are sold with small turbodiesels and manual transmissions. The Kia Sorento is one that comes to mind and also the Hyundai Sante Fe. They sell like hot cakes over here, yet mpg wise you know they are bad. Wonder what would happen if the TD version were sold here?
